Melanoma is a type of skin cancer that occurs in melanocytes, the cells that color the skin and make moles. It is the most serious type of skin cancer because it can spread or metastasize to other tissues and organs in the body. Metastatic melanoma often spreads to the tissue under the skin, lymph nodes, lungs, liver and brain. Recent advances in treatment have resulted in improved outcomes in some patients with metastatic melanoma. However, new treatments are still urgently needed to help more patients control their disease.
